US Presidential History Stories at the Silicon Valley Storytellers Meeting

As a grade school student, you likely heard stories about two of the greatest U.S. Presidents, Abraham Lincoln (born Feb 12th) and George Washington (born Feb 22nd).  For example, George Washington, the first U.S. President, chopped down a cherry tree, then confessed by saying "I cannot tell a lie" when he got in trouble for it.  Abraham "Honest Abe" Lincoln borrowed a book from his neighbor, and while it was in his possession, it was accidentally ruined by rain seeping into the wall of his log cabin. He worked to make money to pay off the book's price to the owner.

The third Monday of February is President's Day, the Federal Holiday that honors George Washington and other Presidents too.  Let's take time this month to recall these historical stories & some myths.

Storytelling is an important part of everyday communication and a great skill to develop for your family, career, and entertainment. A skilled storyteller can help others understand the world around them, or take them a voyage through fantasy, escaping the daily grind.

The Silicon Valley Storytellers is an advanced club for Toastmasters, where members focus on story creation and delivery. Our members bring prepared speeches, or engage in story development exercises. It’s fun, lively, and entertaining!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
